Strange Bedfellows?

For most of this season, Squaws would have been a more appropriate nickname.

Sure he could, but it was just a rant about how he hopes the whole team rapes his ex-wife and then something about the Jews.

I'd be more partial to the Washington Beefhearts.

Will players who commit fouls be drawn and quartered during half time?  I could be persuaded to watch this.

So, Bravehearts, which fans will then shorten to Braves.

So some guy who lives near the owner has this 'great business plan' whereby he:

1) trademarks "Washington Bravehearts"
2) goes to some neighborhood/alumni party with the owner of the Redskins, convinces him "Bravehearts" is the best name for the team
3) profit

They couldn't have selected a name more ripe for mockery short of going for Washington Gaylords (in honor of former Senator Gaylord Nelson, of course)
 
2013-10-25 03:16:07 PM  
I always thought the Redskins should change the teams name. The Washington Original People's or The Wops for short. I mean who could find that offensive.

Washington Pigskins.

Hogs, football, keeps "Skins" nickname.
 
2013-10-25 03:18:01 PM  
Potatoes, damn it change the logo to a red spud and the whole thing goes away and you have a ready made relocation target in Idaho when you need a new stadium deal.

Let's remember those Native Americans...

The Washington Apoclyptos.

I know it was a satire piece, but I still think that the Washington Veterans is the best of any of the suggestions I've heard.  You have all the memorials in DC, you can tie in the military and do a lot of good if you create a charitable arm to help out vets and you probably wouldn't even need to change the color scheme.
 
2013-10-25 03:22:17 PM  
What's cool is that the actor that played Braveheart was a total anti-Semite racist.

Or something like that.

The Washington Football Club has released a statement that they had nothing to do with this and Snyder doesn't know the dude that registered this trademark.

Pretty much.

Just make their logo on the side of their helmet a red potato.  Problem solved!
 
2013-10-25 03:35:44 PM  
Racist-ass Mellie Gibson is still my shiat.

Does this mean a crucial bridge to get to the stadium will be left out of the production?
 
2013-10-25 03:40:30 PM  
Jeez.  Take Jello Biafra's advice, call them the Bribes and be done with it.

Just change it to The Hogs already.

The tradition is already there and the nickname reflects local customs.
 
2013-10-25 03:56:54 PM  
No, we do want to see the Hawgs in kilts.

/don't even think 'commando'

Question: would Squaw Valley be another name for a maiden Native American's vagina?

The $1000 Thong contest from '08 was pretty good.

Sounds like someone wants to try to get an LFL team in Washington. Bravehearts sounds like a good name for a girls team.
 
2013-10-25 04:53:17 PM  
Washington Native Americans.  Not really a name change at all, and they are the Nats for short.

That's racist and insulting to the alternatively abled.
You might be on to something there.

Nope. Brian Gaylord, the ref who managed to fark up instant replay in the early 90s.

/Not csb, parents bought a house from the guy. He failed to disclose the history of flooding.

Change the guy in the currrent logo to a red potato and the feathers to a pair of french fries...


Of, we go all passive-aggressive & change the name to the Washington Correctness.

Piggers are Number 1. Piggers are gonna go all the way this year.

I've tried to stay out of this controversy, but I think it's time I weighed in...

Yes, I think it's time the Washington Redskins changed their names to either the Hanover or Maryland Redskins.

Now, I get that there are a lot of traditionalists who think they should keep the Washington name, but they haven't played in D.C. in almost two decades! It's ridiculous!
